SINGAPORE /PRNewswire/ -- AAR (NYSE: AIR) announced today at Asian Aerospace 2006 that it has been selected by China Eastern Airlines (Yunnan) to provide landing gear maintenance, repair and overhaul services for its fleet of 767-300 aircraft. The maintenance will be performed at AAR Landing Gear Services' FAA, EASA, CAAC and ISO 9001 certified facility in Miami, Florida.

AAR will maximize aircraft availability by providing China Eastern Airlines (Yunnan) with a freshly restored landing gear set while AAR performs the required maintenance and overhaul on the used set. China Eastern Airlines (Yunnan) will also have access to AAR's extensive inventory of rotable landing gear components. AAR Landing Gear Services is a self-contained, full-service aircraft landing gear overhaul facility that provides maintenance, repair, overhaul and exchange services on virtually every type of major commercial, regional and military aircraft in use today.
